Thomasina Miers

When Thomasina Miers first arrived in Mexico aged eighteen, she fell so in love with its food that she went back to live there, opening a cocktail bar and cooking with some of Mexico’s top chefs. After returning to London and winning BBC2’s MasterChef in 2005, Thomasina co-founded Wahaca, winner of numerous awards for its food and sustainability credentials. Tommi’s passion lies in great food and how it can positively affect people and the environment: she co-founded the ‘Pig Idea’ campaign in 2015 and in 2017 she helped set up Chefs in Schools. An ambassador for the Soil Association, she was awarded an OBE in 2019 for her services to the food industry. Tommi has a weekly column in the Guardian’s Feast magazine. Meat-free Mexican is her eighth cookery book. She lives in London with her husband and three daughters.
